Allow BoincTasks to manage WSL
« on: February 02, 2021, 09:15:01 pm »
Having just installed WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) on my Win10 machine, I find that I can attach to a project (e.g., CPDN) and run a work unit OK.  But I have to use a command-line version of BOINC Manager (boinccmd).  https://www.cpdn.org/forum_thread.php?id=9025

It looks like it will be a while before WSL get a GUI to allow the use of Boinc Manager, if it works at all.
It would be much nicer if BoincTasks could manage those accounts running under WSL.  It can already detect the presence of WSL, so there must be some capability.

Thanks.

The whole WSL is still in flux.
Right now I'm building a new BoincTasks from the ground up, that will run Windows Mac and Linux.
